Claude in Arlington, Texas has posted a prickly pear jelly recipe on his blog, Random Rants and Prickly Plants. Plus, there’s been some canning going on this year too, and some cactus tarts are the result. They look delicious.
Prickly Pear Jelly
1 quart of Prickly Pears (or Tuna as they’re called) to yield 2 1/2 cups of juice
1 package powdered pectin (the liquid doesn’t work for this recipe)
3 Tablespoons lemon or lime juice
3 1/2 cups sugar
Click through for the rest. And this was in response to our search for cactus candies over the last few days. Behold the power of blogs!
I wonder if I can get Hap to try this. He would know how to.
